Kansai Independent League: Akashi to pay October salaries

by on Sep.02, 2009 @ 7:58 am, under Independent

The Akashi Red Soldiers announced on Tuesday that they will continue to pay their players 200,000yen through October, as stated in their contracts.  This comes on the heals of the Kobe 9 Cruise temporarily terminating their player's contracts for the month of October and both the Osaka Gold Villicanes (50%) and Kishu Rangers (30%) turning to pay-cuts to address their financial struggles.

The club hopes that when the fans see their efforts to pay their players as originally promised, they'll be more likely to support the team and watch more games.
